In what has become an annual tradition, Hamilton Association for Volunteering Outreach and Charity (HAVOC) and Community Opportunity and Outreach Project (COOP) collected food, gifts and other items to make the holidays a bit happier for some local families in need.


HAVOC sponsored a holiday Mitten Tree bearing gift requests from children in need and collected 84 gifts that included toys, teddy bears and hats and mittens.


COOP held an employee  drive and collected 26 bags of food, 6-8 gifts each for 10 children at United Cerebral Palsy (UCP), 30 items for House of Good Shepherd residential cottages, and more than $700 in monetary donations that will be used to buy gifts for UCP, House of the Good  Shepherd, Johnson Park Center and Hope House.
